A new IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.3.8 BETA has been released. It is available for download from:
VERSION 1.3.8 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.7)
- removed the workaround introduced in 1.3.5 for symbol translation because it caused problems for symbols like 6EU0-GLOBEX-FUT where symbol is not equal to local symbol less expiration code (EUR vs 6E). Instead symbol translation now relies solely on method introduced in 1.3.6
- Portfolio and Account Info pages were empty when used with Individual account (non-FA) without SetInfoAccount() in 1.3.5 and 1.3.6. Fixed
VERSION 1.3.7 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.6)
- GetPositionList() returned empty symbol part for non-stocks. Fixed
- PlaceOrder failed on Financial advisor accounts when non-master Account was passed in a parameter without preceding SetAccount call. Fixed.
For important changes made in previous version (1.3.5) see:
NOTE: auto-trading interface is separate and independent from IB DATA PLUGIN and is not required if you are only interested in getting data from IB / TWS.
NOTE: This version has been tested with TWS 907.7. We can not guarantee proper operation with earlier / later versions because IB may introduce incompatible changes.
